Garden gig leads to live session

An up and coming Wirral band played live for our listeners after one of our presenters saw them rehearsing in their front garden!

Steve Evans heard The Week Before as they were practicing for a charity concert in aid of Claire House.

Tommy Stamp (vocals), Jess Billington (bass) and Breandan Fawcett (lead guitar and backing vocals) perform live in studio

The rock band formed in 2013 and got their name for initially leaving their rehearsals until the last minute.

Tommy, Jess and Breandan performed at the Glastonferry festival at Eastham Ferry Hotel over the bank holiday weekend.

"It was just a really good atmosphere for everyone to be around and for everyone to be supportive. They were all dancing and having fun and it was such a good cause as well." - Jess Billington

It's not the first time they have raised money for charity, previously setting up a fundraiser in Bromborough in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Listeners to the Coffee Club heard the band's cover of House of the Rising Sun and Seven Nation Army before they played a live acoustic version of Bon Jovi's Wanted Dead or Alive.
